My artistic practice is centred around the notion of exploration. Everything I make and do is gleaned from experience and research so my output morphs into whatever form is appropriate for the subject matter I’m dealing with. Some recurring themes are the natural world, human/animal behaviour and communication. Mediums I often use are video, performance, writing and photography. A large part of my practice comes about from collaboration with others. Whether it’s a discussion about life at sea or a group of people howling together, or a co-authored book of shared experiences.
I try to engage with the richness of life. Often subjects are outside my personal experiences so they have to be imagined. Although at other times events might rather be forgotten and examining them closer can help to understand them better. I see my practice as an organic entity that grows and changes as more people add to it and different projects come to light. My role is to ensure that it keeps developing with positive energy.
Giuseppe Mistretta is unsure of where he’s heading but is enjoying the journey.
